Tile & Grout Cleaning
Damp or wet mopping is typically how tile floors have been cleaned for generations. Over time the trace amount of soil, salt, oils, etc. that this method and most others leave behind, gradually begin to build up and become embedded on the tile and in the grout lines. Slowly the floor begins to look dull and grout lines get dark, sometimes completely changing color. At this point it becomes very difficult to get clean. Hand-scrubbing it with a brush often, many times on your hands and knees, is a must. With a lot of work, you can normally get it to look pretty good but often not clean enough to reseal the grout.
In recent years, state of the art attachments have been developed for tile and grout cleaning that connect to a high pressure extractor, or truck-mounted cleaning unit, that is commonly used for carpet and upholstery cleaning. This "clean and capture" technology has revolutionized the way tile, grout, concrete, and natural stone are professionally cleaned, and has taken deep cleaning it to a much higher level.
Heated professional tile-cleaning solution is applied to the surface and machine-scrubbed to loosen soil, followed by a high temperature power wash and extraction generated from the truck-mounted cleaning unit, leaving surfaces nearly dry. Deeply embedded soil is removed faster and far greater than any other process available and is the recommended method for deep, restorative cleaning by the industry. Floors and edges are then dry-mopped and towel-dried, leaving your tile and grout exceptionally clean and colors rejuvenated.
If it has been awhile since your grout or unglazed tile has been sealed for soil, stain, and water repellency protection, this is the best way to get it clean enough to do so. This service can be completed at the same time that any other of my services are being done in order to make scheduling convenient.
